This is a must for every survival library
Every good prepper and survivalist ought to have this book in their library. I understand the ways of Victorian England and America. I can translate any recipe and formula.

I have a newer edition of this book, it comes with a small encyclopedia (they are fairly sure in that edition, for instance, that things like the auto-mobile and telephone are going to catch on). This appears to be a facsimile of an earlier edition, with the trials and tribulations of the person who made it available on line getting it online included.
This is an invaluable resource to the person studying the ways things were done in that time, though I've found that the instructions especially for medicine and cooking rely a lot on all ready knowing what the Victorian household looks like and works like.
A terrific find!
